A Child's Drawing is a murder that took place on December 19, 1962. On this day, a boy was told at school to draw a picture for his parents. As he was drawing, he said to his teacher that he heard an "Icky" noise in his left ear.
After he was done drawing, his teacher told everyone to put the drawings up on the table next to her desk. Since he was not finished drawing, he took it home. When he got home, he quickly finished the drawing and gave it to his mother, forgetting that he was supposed to give it to her on Christmas.
She said, "Oh honey, thank you, I will keep good care of it."
After this the boy held his left ear because of the noise he had told his teacher of earlier that day. His mother asked him what was wrong. He just sat on the ground and stared.
His mother didn't know what to do so she grabbed the picture and pinned it to a cabinet then called 911. As the phone was ringing, she looked over at the picture and its face looked as if it had been erased. She looked at her son; his face had been clawed off. She looks back at the picture where she saw a smiley face drawn in blood where the old face on the drawing had been.
As the police picked up the phone, all they heard was a scream and the phone hung up. As the police had gotten to the scene, they saw the son being held by his mother. The police officer looked at the mother. As she turned her head, the police saw that her face was completely covered in blood.
The picture had drove the mother insane, to the point where she killed her own son. She was delusional, because she had thought that the person in the drawing had killed her son. About 15 years later, a man’s son had drawn him the same picture. Let’s just say his day had turned around drastically.
A woman that lived near the son said, "I heard no noise, but felt as if something was buzzing my ear that night. it may have came from that house". The woman was found dead in her house on her kitchen floor, with a drawing on her cabinet very similar to the one the boy had drawn, before his mother killed him.
